For 40+ five star reviews check out our sister condo at Sapphire Beach - vrbo# 207759.

Welcome to Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina. These are individually owned condos. And while the name says "resort" we lack most all the amenities that you would find at a typical resort. For example, there is not a restaurant on site, no spa, no tennis, no cabana boy....but you do get to be in a condo that is closest to the beach in all of St Thomas. You are literally step to the beach with an awesome unobstructed view and the sunrise over St John is unbelievable.

For more pics and a travel guide on Sapphire Beach and Beachtacular! You can access my web site via the links in VRBO. Most all questions you may have can be answered in the travel/vacation guide that is published on my web site. The travel/vacation guide is 10 pages of very useful information that is a must read for those that are new to the US Virgin Islands and Sapphire Beach.

Building E has wonderful views of the sunrise; you will love waking up each morning to a beachtacular sunrise whether in bed, or on the patio, simply amazing!

This beach front one bedroom condo is on the ground floor at Sapphire Beach. The patio steps onto the beach at the quiet end of the resort (bring your water shoes if you want to snorkel in front of condo, as it is rocky at the waters edge). Our ground floor building E beach front suite offers a king bed. The suite includes a bedroom area, sitting area with cable and TV, kitchen with appliances, tile bathroom with shower and double sinks. The private patio looks out to beautiful St. John. Beautiful! Listen to the gentle waves in the background as you dine on your patio or relax in your comfortable accommodations.

Wake up and look out your door and see the beautiful sunrise, white sandy beach and blue water. Enjoy the wonderful snorkeling just steps from your door. The location is great for honeymoons, romantic getaways, fun in the sun, and pure relaxation. Step right out to the quiet beach or take a very short walk to the pool or marina - slip rentals and day trips are available. Red Hook and the ferry to St. John are just minutes away. Red Hook and St. John have great dining opportunities and plenty of nightly dancing and fun...

Sapphire Beach is the best beach on St. Thomas - great snorkeling!!

Contact us for availability. We would love to have you!

Why Bernard J Arroyo chose East End

It is right on the beach! This truly is one of the best locations in St Thomas if you desire to be directly on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a review a guest left (it is posted on another vacation rental site/AirBNB).



“Bernard was an excellent host, and his condo is beautiful. Overall, we had a great stay. Bernard took the time to answer all of my questions over the phone before our trip, and helpfully provided us the names and locations nearby grocery stores, restaurants, and bars. The condo is right on the beach, with an amazing view of St. John across the water - you can't ask for much more than that. Waking up to the sound of the waves was blissful. We found the best place to go in the water is on the northern side of Sapphire Bay, about a 3-minute walk from the condo along the beach, where the water is much clearer and the sand is more fine. The resort had a nice pool area, and felt very safe. Most of the guests appeared to be couples in their 30s and 40s, along with a few families with young kids. The resort is conveniently located about a 2-minute drive from Red Hook, with quick access to the ferry to St. John (which is a must-see), and some pretty cool bars and restaurants. I would definitely recommend staying at this condo.”

Fantastic stay and great info from owner...

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a 10 day stay in this unit, which was very clean and comfortable. I have never before stayed right on the beach -- if was fantastic! The location was very close to Red Hook, which has numerous restaurants and shops. Bernard, the owner, was extremely responsive and helpful with my questions before, during, and after the trip! I would highly recommend staying here.

Breathtaking! Everywhere you look...postcard worthy!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Bernard's Condo last week(3/3 - 3/9)and both agreed that it was the best vacation ever! The condo couldn't be any closer to the beautiful aqua blue Caribbean waters. The condo itself had everything that we needed and was very neat and clean. The best part is the porch/deck area....so relaxing and to wake up to that view every morning was beach"Spectacular"! We did not rent a vehicle as the location to Red Hook and the ferry to St. Johns is ideal! I would recommend taking the ferry (about 15mins) over to Cruz Bay in St. Johns. The town itself and their beaches are worth the trip.

Bernard was great to work with from the moment I inquired about his condo to the day we left. He was the most responsive and helpful owner that I have done business with.

My wife and I joked that we shouldn't post too good of a review...as we would rather keep this place on the down low ;)

We will be back!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The rental was in a prefect location in proximity to the water and the beach. While the rental would not be considered high end, the proximity and access within steps to the beach make this all worthwhile, after all, we didn't go to St. Thomas to be inside. Snorkeling was great right off the rental as well as down the beach. Bernard provided plenty of information about the room, area and attractions which made the stay even better. We had no issues at this place except for a couple power outages. One lasted well over an hour, but that was a good time to take a walk and do some exploring.
